Alex was a fantastic guide in his hometown of San Sebastián. We enjoyed every second of being with him in his comfortable and extremely clean car. Alex speaks excellent English, and knows all the ins and outs of this fabulous city. Timing is important when wanting to make the most of your tour and you can count on Alex to be your host. From coffee to pinxtos to the greatest views on earth, Alex delivers. Love food? Alex is a foodie who knows his stuff. Enjoy!

Alex provided a terrific tour into the back roads of the Pyrenees, showing us a mature forest, mountain sheep, horses, and cows, and great views. Also a stop in both St Jean's and a drive along the coastline. He knows his way around countryside and towns, and created a wonderful day adjusted to our interests.

Tour: #320089, Wine tour to Rioja from San Sebastian and The source of Urederra river, Bilbao, Pais Vasco, Spain    view tour
Date: Sep 23/19

Alex created a customized tour for us, picking us up in Bilbao and ending in San Sebastian, and including two good wine tastings, a visit to La Guardia old town, a walk around a lake, visit to a castle, and a bonus visit to an old country church. He adjusted the tour to our desires and put in a long day to give us everything we wanted and then some. His English and knowledge of history is excellent.

Alex is a great tour guide! My sister and I enjoyed our tour of the lovely Basque towns between San Sebastian and Biarritz with him. He knows where to go for great photos! Some of the towns we visited were Ciboure, Saint-Jean-de-Luz, and Guéthary, where we had a feast of local seafood. Alex helped me to be brave and try squid in its own ink, mussels, and fried crispy squid tentacles. Alex showed us all around beautiful Biarritz, since we were going to be staying there for 2 days. Such a wonderful tour!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your review!!!

We had a fabulous day trip with Alex to the Rioja Wine district . Alex was the perfect guide for our group of 6. He was relaxed, friendly and very informative about the wines but also about the culture and history of the local area. Highly recommend!!!

This Tour hosted by Alex gives you all the highlights of San Sebastián. Vehicle well appointed, was already awaiting our arrival to start the tour. Gave us a very good insight to the history, cultural, attractions available all around the city and both sides of the bay. Plus local tips on fresh food markets, pintos bars and restaurants. Highly recommend!

We thoroughly enjoyed our Sans Sebastian highlights tour with Alex. We stopped at Monte Igueldo for a great view over Sans Sebastian and photo opportunity. Mount Urgall, La Conche Beach, surf beach and a walk around the Old Town were also highlight of our driving/walking tour. Our tour finished with a tasting of pintxos and the local beer/wine. Alex is a very easy going and fun natured person and we felt very comfortable with him as our guide. We would highly recommend Alex as a guide.

Alex was wonderful. He was more like a host than a guide. He took us to two very good wineries for tasting and an excellent local restaurant for lunch and a side trip to an old and quaint village in La Rioja with wonderful views. No tourist traps. His conversation is good. He introduced us to popular Spanish music artists on his playlist during the drive. Thank you, Alex if you're reading this.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Thank you so much for your review. It was a big pleasure to show you the wine I hope to see you again. All the best Alex
